A Democrat crows over tricking the “stupid” American voter 9

… to get the perfectly horrible health care law passed.

For the Left, the end always justifies the means.

See how smug Jonathan Gruber, architect of Obamacare, looks as he shares his  joke about the “stupidity” of the American voter.

Here’s what he says, so you can mull it over:

This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. So it was written to do that. In terms of risk related subsidies, if you had a law which made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass.

Daniel Greenfield comments at Front Page:

So an Obamacare architect just admitted that the whole thing was built on a tower of lies and that it is indeed a tax.

As the Supreme Court ruled it is.

The passing of the Obamacare law was also a great leap forward on the road to serfdom.

It needs to be repealed.

    So, one: now, without any further doubt, Obama KNEW and KNOWS he was lying to the American people all the time.

    Two: the American people could have only been made this dumb by the America compulsory-schooling system; intentionally misnamed as education.

    And, three: unquestionably and irrefutably, every democrat that supported Obamacare IS very Stupid or a Liar or, more likely, Both.

      And four: Obama is a great man in his own mind, impervious to pain, disgrace, and attack.

      He feels that it was and is an imperative to lie to the American people whenever he feels that it is in their own best interest and that makes it in his own best interest!

      If someone like Obama and Gruber were in charge in our government during World War 2, they would’ve been shot for Treason and desertion of duty!

        Who was it (Hitler or Stalin?) That said if you tell really big lies, and repeat them long enough, people will believe them.
        And of course it helps if they’ve been dumbed down already.

          Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister said that. May he rot in a Hell, if there is one…….

    No surprise that he’s a conceited, arrogant, lying little twerp. That makes him eminently qualified to be an Obama clone.
    As we all knew, the entire thing was a lie from the beginning, as was their promise of “transparency”. And it’s the voters of their own party who were stupid enough to vote for it, and for Obama himself!
    Nothing like hearing it straight from the horses mouth.

        LOL. (if he’s listening) not to be confused with a Burro!

          The ass of a jackass – can’t get much worse than that!
          Except, maybe, the ass of a baboon…But it all fits!
